Atari 1027 Printer, OS Timeout Fix#

;      ----------------------------------------------------------------
;      1027 Printer Timeout Fix  (Ver. 2)                 (AUTORUN.SYS)
;      Joe Miller   10 Mar 1985
;
;      This patch corrects the 1027 printer timeout problem by prevent-
;      ing the Operating System from generating an incorrect Data Frame
;      checksum.  It consists of two logical modules.  The first module
;      is executed once (at initialization) to chain into the "serial
;      output ready" IRQ process.  The second module is invoked when an
;      IRQ is generated for each serial output byte.  It checks to see
;      if an invalid checksum is going to be sent for the current data
;      frame, and, if so, prevents it from happening.
;
;      NOTE:  This code is implemented as a standard "AUTORUN.SYS" file
;             so that it may be used with any version of ATARI DOS.
;             With some care, it may also be embedded directly within
;             your own application program.  Note usage of cassette
;             buffer.  Assemble with AMAC.
